Resonance Works Announces Genre-Defying Tenth Anniversary Season

Pittsburgh performing arts nonprofit to offer fresh perspective on traditional classic music performances.

Resonance Works celebrates its tenth anniversary season with four powerful, intimate productions that showcase the depth and range of classical music performance, including two world premieres, orchestral favorites, awe-inspiring masterworks, and an evocative new opera.

Since its founding in 2013, Resonance Works has produced beloved operas, rare and new concert works, and exciting choral performances, including 12 world premieres and dozens of regional premieres. With a commitment to collaboration and innovation, Resonance Works highlights leading artistic voices exploring urgent contemporary issues.

Now in its tenth year, this genre-defying performing arts nonprofit announces its tenth season will kick off with the Pittsburgh premiere of Jorge Sosa and Cerise Lim Jacobs’ contemporary opera, I am a Dreamer Who No Longer Dreams in October, and celebrate the holidays with the beloved classic Amahl and the Night Visitors, paired with Margaret Bonds’ uplifting The Ballad of the Brown King in December. 2023 opens with To Breathe Free, a concert that pairs Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” with two contemporary works by Caroline Shaw and Gilda Lyons, followed by the season’s finale of Johann Sebastian Bach’s monumental B Minor Mass.

“Over the past decade, Resonance Works has presented innovative productions that subvert the expectations of classical performance and invite audiences to connect with this diverse genre in new and deeper ways,” says Maria Sensi Sellner, the organization’s Founder and Artistic Director. “Our tenth season honors our past while also looking to the future with a mix of new works and timeless classics that showcase our dynamic community of performers and collaborators. We are so excited to continue bringing Pittsburgh audiences powerful, timely musical experiences in intimate local settings.”
